MLK Week 2011 at New York University is scheduled for February 7-12, 2011. This year we will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1961 visit of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to our Campus. It was on February 10th when Dr. King met with members of the NYU community during a three-hour visit. After lunch with student leaders and meeting campus officials, Dr. King delivered a speech entitled, “The Future of Integration.”
